Summary0015370: Clipping wrong on imported PDF
DescriptionThis actually occurs in 1.5.5svn r22563. I haven't tested on other versions.

This PDF was produced with tikz under LaTeX and contains two rectangles, the second of which is clipped to a path. However, when it is imported to Scribus, both rectangles are clipped.

LaTeX code for reference:

  \draw (0,0) rectangle (5,5);
  \clip (3,3) rectangle (6,6);
  \draw (4,4) rectangle (7,7);
TagsNo tags attached.

Actually, I notice the behaviour is different depending on whether I open the PDF directly (e.g., scribus scibus_clipping_bug.pdf) and if I import it via File→Import…->Get Vector File…

In the first case, both rectangles are clipped, but in the latter case, neither rectangle is clipped. Neither results in just one rectangle being clipped.

Further to this, I notice there's a bunch of clipping issues. Clipping to complex paths doesn't work either. Perhaps this is a bigger issue of clipping support in Scribus.
